Es gibt Neuigkeiten zum Projekt. Alexandre hat mir folgenden Text mit der Bitte um Veröffentlichung hier übermittelt.
During my stay in Naples I had the chance to meet a young and promising tailor. His name is Nicola Capparelli. You probably never heard about him but if you're familiar with the names of Massura or Sartoria Leonardi, then you've probably already admired his work.
Nicola is specialised in crafting pants totally by hand. Even if he's a young man (he's 22), he makes a remarkable work. Just take a look at some pictures.
Actually, his grandfather Giuseppe is a tailor and tought Nicola how to work. Giuseppe started to work at 8 years old and his continues to transmit his knowledges to his grandson.
Coming back to Nicola, he's a nice man, very kind and passionate about tailoring. He's a hard worker. He works in the day in Sartoria Leonardi and in his small workshop the rest of the time to offer his handmade pants to some clients. He wants to develop his own activity and when I told him about our French forum made of tailoring enthusiasts, we agreed to start a MTO/MTM project.
There was a minimum quantity to validate the offer, but the threshold has been reached and now I propose to take your orders over a period of one month.
The price is 180€ including a selection of fabrics (supplied by his cousin Gennaro). Some options will require an additional fee to be paid, but anyway this price is unbeatable. It's an opportunity for us to get beautiful handmade garments at decent price and to promote a promising Neapolitan tailor. That's what I call a win/win.
It's quite a homemade project and we don't have the perfect database for fabrics but Nicola will always be ready to help you find the fabric you want and if you have clear views on what you're looking for, feel free to ask. He'll do his best.
You'll find some pictures following this link:
Er hat mir auch ein Bestell-Formular geschickt, dass aber noch auf Französisch ist und in Kürze übersetzt werden wird. Bei Bedarf kann ich das aber schon per PM weitergeben.
